Meyer joins Capco from Lucido, a provider of software for commodity trade and risk management, where he spent two years and was SVP of energy solutions. In the role, he built and led a team of energy trading and risk management consultants.

Before that, Meyer spent a year as a managing director at automation software firm Ion, where he headed a professional services group in the energy space.

Earlier in his career, Meyer spent over 15 years at commodity management software firm Allegro (acquired by Ion in 2019), where he held roles in solutions consulting, project leadership, and product management.

Meyer has a bachelor’s degree in business from Northwestern State University.

“I look forward to working with the amazing team here, and I am thankful for all the opportunities that lead me to this point in my career!” Meyer said in a LinkedIn post.

Headquartered in London, Capco provides management and technology consulting services to financial services and energy clients across the globe. The 5,000-person firm was last year acquired by India-based IT consultancy Wipro.

Capco earlier this year added Pushpak Das Purkayastha as a client partner.
